    GPS Maps updated to 3.2.0 (issue for Storm though?)

    Google Maps has been updated to 3.2.0 which adds something called "Layers" to the Google maps experience. I tried it out on my Storm however and had compatibility issues which weren't fixed by disabling or enabling compatibilty mode or editing permissions. Seems like Storm owners have to wait for a compatible version to be released.

    If you are using a leaked 5.0.x.x OS, then chances are the Google Maps site cannot properly detect your phone as with the 3.0.2 release and will give you a generic app meant for a majority of non-touch screen BBs.

    3.2.0 for a 4.7.x.x Storm will work on 5.0.x.x if the jad or alx/cod is saved and uploaded somehow.

    Aha! That makes sense. Thanks very much for the informative reply.

    Ok, so who has a COD for a 4.7 compatible version of 3.2.0?

    Running BBCM hybrid v8.5 - Google Maps 3.20 works prerfectly on this OS so I'm assuming you are running a 5.0 OS which is causing the issue you mention.

    That's the 3.0.2 version. You'd think they could name them differently to avoid confusion! Thanks for your reply

    Yes, I'm running a 5.0 OS. Apparently if I can get the COD from someone who has the 4.7 version of the new 3.2.0 I can use that. Any chance you can extract the COD and send it to me? BBSAK would allow you to do that

    I have the COD from 4.7 but am out now. Can you send it to you when I get back home.

    The storm is not compatible due to the touch screen. People have been able to download it on the Tour that do have a 5.0's. We'll just have to wait for a fix.

    Thanks! I actually got a working OTA link from http://forums.crackberry.com/f134/go...kberry-343059/ so I won't need the COD. Someone posted a JAD file from the 4.7 version and someone else hosted it online.

    Be warned that the .jad file they have up is for 3.0.2
